Does anyone know if there is a waiting list for St Paul College's LPN Program?... Read More

  1. 1
    I am looking at a three year waitlist in New Richmond for their RN, so I am trying to find out if I could get an LPN program done and possibly a bridge program done in less amount of time than I would spend on the waitlist. I'm not sure if River Falls or St Paul is closer to me, but they seem about the same.

    I see now, it does say it's the Eau Claire campus. Opps! I guess the instructors there don't realize that either b/c we had this big lecture at the end of 2nd semester about going on/stopping/etc.

    To the original poster, if you do want to start in River Falls, you COULD stop after 2nd semester and sit the LPN boards. I didn't stop, but I did get my LPN license so I could work. A lot of my classmates did the same.

    Last I heard from incoming students, the wait isn't as long at CVTC. Sounds like the New Richmond school has a very long wait, yuck!

    Are you currently going there for LPN?
    I took a break because I was pregnant, had my baby 2 wks ago, so I am going back next semester, I also got accepted at st Kate's, I am not really sure right now which one to go.

    congratulations on your baby! how exciting have you had any sleep lately? are the days all running together with the nights? i remember those days! i have a nine month old. he has luckily been sleeping through the night since eight weeks old.

    st paul v.s st kates... huge price difference! personally, i would finish the lpn program and then look for an lpn-bsn program. i know i read about one today that was strictly online.

    I am currently attending Pine Tech for their LPN program. I too was accepted into St. Kate's fall program. I thought that it would be better in the long run, but after a lot of really weighing in where I am right now and what I've completed so far, I've decided to complete the LPN program and then do a LPN to RN mobility program. Two of my major factors were that only one of my classes that I've completed in the past year will transfer, so kind of like a year wasted not only in time but also financially. The second reason is the HUGE price difference. I'm looking at $12,000 for my LPN program start to finish or else S. Kate's at $45,000. I know that having a degree from St. Kate's can look stellar on an application, but I also believe that being a nurse is a lot more than how much you paid to attend school. The best of luck in whatever decision you make.

    I think I will go back to finish the LPN program since I only have 6 months to complete it if everything goes well. St kates keep changing things, they just called me that there is a new change that the compass test is going to be a placement test for reading and writing, I do not have time to take all those classes and it will be more money too. well good luck to you in the program.

    I would say do the LPN first, then apply to a mobility program after that. LPN pay isnt that bad too, plus you will get paid more as an RN if you have LPN experience. I got done with my LPN last year and am stating the RN 2009. It will be worth it! good luck

    Check out Inver Grove CC and Century College. I would also check out Normandale's program.
